Good brake pads

saya28, Dec 9, 11:02am
Any recommendations for good inexpensive brake pads for normal driving and road trips?

Ask at BNT, they do good value stuff.

Nice_lady, the car is CRV.

Saxman, will give them a ring.

BNT's CPlus pads are on my opinion the best value for money on the market. I don't bother with anything else now.

I would agree that BNT’s CPlus offer the best in terms of low dust, noise and value.

Another vote for BNT's CPlus, the best value for money pad that I have ever used. I fitted them to my own daily driver, a Mazda Atenza to test them properly before fitting them to any other car.

Thank you.

Why are mechanics unhappy when you decline machining the discs?

saxman99, Dec 19, 2:57pm
Because it’s a chargeable service. Having said that if your discs are badly scored or a little warped then it’s worth doing, assuming that they are within the runout spec.

Because they'd rather not deal with complaints from customers three weeks later when the car comes back with a noise or vibration issue in the brakes and the "it never did this before you touched it" line. It's a much more guaranteeable repair.

I would personally rather not machine them as it makes them thinner, but the pads will take longer to bed in.
